Dreams and Visions
I had another dream about Japan and this could be one of the first dreams I had about Japan. In this dream, I was fighting fiercely with someone on a scaffold and he was trying to chase me and pull me down.
We had a long conversation and at the end I asked them, “Do you know why I came here? Have you heard the name Jesus?” I heard one of the people answer that he had heard of the name of Jesus
I dreamed about a shoe and I was told in the dream I could grow vegetables using this shoe so I went to wash the shoe. I was also told in the dream I could put flour in a white hat, then we could make dumplings that the Japanese like to eat. So I put the dough into the white hat.

One question that disturbs us in Numbers 10 is, what is the name of Moses’ father-in-law? Numbers 10:29 (ESV) says, “Moses said to Hobab the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law…” This section is very confusing. The meaning in the Recovery Version that we are reading is “Hobab, the father-in-law of Moses, is the son of Reuel the Midianite,” because Judges 4:11 mentions “Hobab, the father-in-law of Moses.” But when I first read it, I felt like “Moses’ father-in-law is Reuel, and he has a son named Hobab.” One person at the meeting said that this understanding was not consistent with Judges 4:11. It seems to her that the father of Hobab, Moses’ father-in-law, was called Reuel. But I said that when Exodus 2:18 was talking about Moses had helped to water the flock of the daughters of a Midianite priest in the wilderness, it was mentioned that their father’s name was “Reuel”. This proves that Reuel is not Moses’ grandfather, but rather Moses’ father-in-law himself. When Exodus 3:1 mentions Moses’ father-in-law, the name used is “Jethro”.
Numbers 9 tells two stories. In the first story, the Lord was telling Moses to let the Israelites celebrate the Passover, and He answered Moses’ question about whether the Israelites could still celebrate the Passover since they were ceremonially unclean because of a dead body, and were away on a journey (Numbers 9:1-14, NIV). The Lord said that even if they were unclean because of a dead body or were away on a trip, they could still celebrate the Passover (Numbers 9:10, NIV). But if a man who was ceremonially clean and not on a journey failed to celebrate the Passover, that person must be cut off from his people (Numbers 9:13, NIV). A foreigner residing among the Israelites could also voluntarily celebrate the Passover.
Numbers 5 contains three stories. The first story is about Jehovah instructing Moses to send away all people with leprosy from the camp. In the next story, Jehovah is instructing Moses to let the Israelites offer up sacrifices for their sins and offenses. The third story is about Jehovah telling Moses how to deal with the problem of a husband suspecting that his wife was unfaithful.
The shortage of protective gear in hospitals in New York caused many medical professionals to go through a difficult time when COVID-19 hit New York earlier this year. According to an article in the New York Times by Andrew Jacobs, Matt Richtel, and Mike Baker, one hospital was even considering shutting down because of the lack of face masks.

When I came back to sit on the bench again I noticed a Peanuts calendar titled “2016 Plan Your Family”. I heard the Lord speak to me again and tell me that I should begin to plan my family for 2016 and I would have a child that year. I ran into the bookstore again and told the cashier and bought this calendar. She probably thought I was crazy thinking that the Lord would give me a child through a calendar. I could tell by the look on her face.
